After barely having played in his first two seasons in college basketball, Mady Sissoko had a solid start to his junior season. He is an athletic, springy big man that can finish plays above the rim, and he is a high-motor player that gives great effort and will make hustle plays on both ends of the floor. He’ll need to be much more assertive on offense and will need to expand his overall skill set, but he is a high-motor, rim running big man that could be a prospect to watch in the future.
